West Coliseum Blvd. reopened after overnight bridge construction project

West Coliseum Blvd. near IPFW

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – All lanes of West Coliseum Boulevard are back open after an overnight construction project closed the westbound lanes near IPFW for several hours Monday morning.

City traffic engineers and INDOT announced the closure last week. The road was closed at 11 p.m. Sunday and reopened around 6 a.m. Monday.

The closure was between North Anthony Boulevard and Crescent Avenue so crews could install bridge structures across Coliseum. The project was part of a new pedestrian walkway that will connect the IPFW and Ivy Tech campuses.
